My internet has been so slow lately and I have recently pretty much lost the ability to play online video games because of the lag. This has meant that I’m doing a lot more drawing in like… a… Creativity Explosion. This explosion has resulted in me making a lot of unfinished drawings like Just heads or eyes. I think the reason for me not finishing my works are because my creativity is like an uncontrolled explosion; going everywhere and setting a lot of things in motion but soon after stopping bothering to continue them (if that makes sense).
This makes me really sad. It normally takes me enormous amounts of time to complete even a simple piece of work (like 5-8 hours for that drawing of the boy with no hands). After this explosion I am left feeling uninspired and bored with nothing to do for the next half an hour waiting for the next 10 min burst of creativity.
I’m working on trying to elongate the length of the short sharp burst of creativity by making characters and such. My friends are mostly better than me at drawing and that can sometimes be disheartening when I have spent hours on one drawing and someone else easily bests me in several minutes. I understand that drawing is absolutely a ‘practice-makes-perfect’ skill. But imagine playing a game and you are unable to even play because of their ability to kill you without you even doing anything.
I get overly upset when I feel like all my time drawing has been wasted because they just make it look like shit compared to their own drawings.
That was just me using this blog to dump my mental sewerage onto… Enjoy! 🙂
